Newly instantiated object not being batched?

Hi,

I have this object that batches well when I ctrl + c and v but not when I Instantiate().
Does the material also get cloned?
Any advice?

When you make a copy you’re using static batching, an object created at run time cannot be static batched, only dynamically.
Static and dynamic batch have different rules, f.e. if you don’t use uniform scale, static batch works but dynamic don’t.
